Universal Republic/Fat Beats
Mayer Hawthorne - How Do You Do (Boxset - 12x7")
Deluxe edition of Mayer's major label debut packs twelve 7"s singles including the vocal and instrumental versions of all of the album tracks, all enclosed in a spot-glossed hardshell case. All twelve singles include their own printed sleeves and the box includes a custom plastic display sheet. Strictly limited to 2014 hand-numbered copies.
The “retro soul” tag is added to almost any contemporary work that sounds like it was originally recorded before 1980, and Mayer Hawthorne is aware of how trends come and go.
On How Do You Do, his first major label effort for Universal Republic Records, Hawthorne proved that he is not part of a trend. The classic Motown sound that provided the blueprint for his self-produced independent debut, A Strange Arrangement, remains, but is joined on How Do You Do by music reminiscent of late 1960s California pop and the best work from the likes of Steely Dan and Chicago.
Universal Republic Records has teamed up with Fat Beats Records to reissue How Do You Do in a stunning 7” vinyl box set featuring the entire album and it’s previously unreleased instrumentals. Housed in a hard case “black on black” box set, this collection features 12 pieces of 7” wax in 12 picture jackets, along with a custom plastic display sheet which holds each of the 12 sleeves in a 4x3 collective mosaic.
Snoop Dogg once heralded Hawthorne as his new favorite artist, praise shared via Twitter by other stars such as Kanye West, Justin Timberlake and John Mayer. With this re-release of How Do You Do, such sentiment is sure to grow, just as Hawthorne himself continues to grow as an artist and performer. It was soul music from which he came, and those roots will never be left behind. But there is more to this artist than just soul music.
